Not specific to language learners, but succinct coverage of essential issues in bite-sized chunks (digital identity, copyright and plagiarism, personal learning networks) which will be useful to teachers and learners alike.

This is a very elegantly designed creative free e-portfolio site. It allows users to create multimedia portfolios that integrate images and video. The portfolio integrates with your social media accounts well. Some very attractive examples to check out.

Technology for TBLT: Examples of virtual worlds for language learning

University of Hawai'i Spanish professor Marta Gonzalez-Lloret explains the principles of task-based language teaching (TBLT) and gives examples of technology use for language learners such as virtual and synthetic worlds (Second Life, World of Warcraft).


See a demonstration of her collaborative environment for Spanish learners "En busca de Esmeraldes" and another virtual environment for an ESP course for health professionals, plus a Chinese online course

Twinvox | Technology and language learning |
Richard Garcia:
Here's a good site for those who care about speaking! Excellent service where people can share their communicative skills as native speakers of a language as they share a good time with someone else who is willing to learn that language through a videochat within the twinvox platform. Find peers and start sharing your skills and learning for free from someone else the language you want to learn. Good initiative, indeed!
